TOLL HWY-REIMBURSE DOT-CONDEMN                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Illinois  Highway  Code  by  repealing  the  Section      
   permitting the Department of Transportation to convey title to certain      
   lands, rights, or  properties  to  the  Illinois  State  Toll  Highway      
   Authority without compensation.  Amends the Toll Highway Act.  Deletes      
   the  provision  authorizing  the  Toll Highway Authority to accept the      
   conveyance of land from the Department of Transportation. Requires the      
   Illinois State Toll Highway Authority to reimburse the  Department  of      
   Transportation  or other agency or department of the State of Illinois      
   for  all  costs  and  administrative  overhead  associated  with   the      
   development,  planning,  promotion,  construction,  land  acquisition,      
   contracting,   and  other  improvements  incurred  on  behalf  of  the      
   Authority. Requires the Authority to  comply  with  the  same  eminent      
   domain requirements as other State agencies.                                
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Department of Transportation)                   
          Cost is estimated at approximately $47.4 million.                    
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Deletes reference to:                                                
          605 ILCS 5/4-508.1 rep.                                              
          605 ILCS 10/9                                                        
          605 ILCS 10/36 new                                                   
          605 ILCS 10/37 new                                                   
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          605 ILCS 5/4-508.1              from Ch. 121, par. 4-508.1           
        Deletes everything.   Amends the Illinois Highway Code.  Provides      
   that  when the  Department of  Transportation conveys to the  Illinois      
   State Toll  Highway  Authority an  interest in land,   rights or other      
   property acquired in connection with a federal-aid project that ceases      
   to exist, the Department must  receive compensation equal to the  fair      
   market   value   of   the   interest   conveyed  (instead  of  without      
   compensation) to be deposited into the Road Fund.                           
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Illinois Toll Highway Authority)                
          It is unclear as to the value of this property and therefore         
          no dollar figure can be attributed to it, however, it is clear       
          that the passage of this bill would result in an increased cost      
          to the Tollway to construct any new roadway.
